of chuck hagel to be secretary of defense. while we were home last week, i had the opportunity to watch the senate confirmation hearing, and i was dismayed by the way many of the republicans on that hearing chastised mr. hagel. mr. hagel is a man of integrity. i -- the question from one of the senators about, do you think the surge worked, and senator hagel was such he didn't want to give him a direct answer. i would have said no, it didn't work. 1,200 americans killed. i don't know how many iraqis. look at the country today. it is totally falling apart. that was a question towards senator hagel. . the iraq war was very unnecessary. it was manufactured by the previous administration, and there was a marine general, greg newbold, who actually wrote an article in "time" after the war started and one of the points he made that i'm going to share with you, mr. speaker, is some of the missteps included the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. in the history of washington, if ever our government needed integrity, it's

forward, was not able to get the votes to move forward on a confirmation vote on former senator hagel, they must be very upset if they think cozying up to iran and betraying israel further than this administration already has, if they think that's a good idea, closer to iran, betray israel, yesterday was a bad day and you should be very angry with most of the senate republicans and especially my friend senator ted cruz, because they happen to be concerned about our ally israel and concerned about threats of madmen running the country of iran. so if you look, though, at the speeches that have come out after senator hagel had said all things were made public and then this stuff keeps trickling out, another speech, hey, let's put a consulate in iran while they are trying to destroy us and apparently some people can't remember past 10, 12 years and i think it's important to remember our history. 1979, i was at fort beening, georgia in the united states army and some of us haven't forgotten what was happening. and as we have seen new things arise, as we have seen the horrors of what is goi

biofuel drones to a green fleet, i expect similar policies to continue from chuck hagel when he is confirmed hopefully next week. for these reasons, i have been a long supporter of renewable fuels. i encourage the development of an industry that is important to our national security and does well as to our economy. whether we are talking food or water or energy security, in the future, more crops in the field can mean fewer soldiers in the field. at the same time, as important as the defense capabilities are , we need to rebalance toward the other three d's. we spend more on defense than on diplomacy, democracy, and development altogether. meanwhile, china has more than doubled its investments in developing new agricultural technologies. those of the kinds of farsighted policies that enable china emerge as a world power and which we need to get back to. as we shift our focus on resources toward a smarter and more constructive form of international interaction, it is radical that food security remain at the center of shaping -- it is critical that food security remain at the cent

professor that the president has nominated to serve as the next secretary of defense, chuck hagel, and i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will have the kind of advocate they need as the nation emerges from more than a decade of war. lastly, i'm honored to be here, as i said, as a catholic and as a proud graduate of another jesuit institution, santa clara university. my time in the university's undergraduate and law school, in many ways shaped the rest of my life as this education will shape the rest of your lives. i remain dopely thankful to the jesuits for the outstanding education that i received. having gone through seven years of philosophy and sill gisms and theology and cannon law, i have been blessed by all the grace and skepticism that jesuits can give. more importantly, i've been shaped by what i believe is their pragmatic approach to life and to faith and to the issues in general. it was that education and my catholic upbringing, particularly as the son of italian immigrants, that instilled in me the very
